Re: Aftermarket Leather?
A $1000 seems about right to have the job done by a speciality shop. I've seem other quotes for this job and they were all around $1000. On some cars, you can buy the leather kit and install it yourself. I've seen these packages for around $500 or maybe slight more. Check eBay.
A word of warning. IF you have side airbags (I'm not sure if they are standard equipment on all models,) you should have the work done by someone who really knows what they are doing. The seat stitching has to be done right or the side air bags will NOT inflate in the correct manner. At least this is what I've be told.
